Product Description 
  
Picture America at the turn of the twentieth century. Walter Schneider did, producing vibrant images of America during these years of transition. Schneider produced some twelve hundred glass-plate negatives, which were stored in a basement for decades and only recently discovered by photographer Lucian Niemeyer. Through images of domestic scenes and festive crowds, rural tranquility and burgeoning industry, we can see how America was coming to terms with a new age. Brimming with social commentary and nostalgia, these photographs will fascinate anyone whose familiarity with this period is limited to the recollections of older relatives. Images of a Vanished Era documents the early craft of an emerging art while offering a new window on the past.
